Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones are the equivalent of a child who can’t stand still, a child comprised of obsessive curiosity, always discovering new ideas and territories and expanding the mind all at the same time.
This is an excellent video that is a window into the past, while looking into the future at the same time. As we all know. Herbie Hancock has always pushed the limits of music, even when his fans and contemporaries may question him or disagree with him. In these particular videos, Herbie is demonstrating the Fairlight CMI as and example of the futuristic direction in which music was heading at that particular time. What makes these videos particular interesting are the guest stars, one of which is a contemporary legend, the other is a childhood name and face that we have seen in the limelight for years.
